Introducing quantum theory by J. P McEvoy ( Book )
26 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quantum theory confronts us with bizarre paradoxes which contradict the logic of classical physics. At the subatomic level, one particle seems to know what the others are doing, and according to Heisenberg's "uncertainty principle", there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed. And yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied, explaining all of chemistry and most of physics. "Introducing Quantum Theory" takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key figures, including Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrodinger. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here, along with descriptions of the two questions raised against Bohr's "Copenhagen Interpretation" - the famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved

Introducing Freud by Richard Appignanesi ( Book )
18 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Freud revolutionized the way we think about ourselves. His psychoanalytic terms such as Id, Ego, libido, neurosis and Oedipus Complex have become a part of our everyday vocabulary. But do we know what they really mean? "Introducing Freud" successfully demystifies the facts of Freud's discovery of psychoanalysis. Irreverent and witty but never trivial, the book tells the story of Freud's life and ideas from his upbringing in 19th-century Vienna, his early medical career and his encounter with cocaine, to the gradual evolution of his theories on the unconscious, dreams and sexuality. With its combination of brilliantly clever artwork and incisive text, this book has achieved international success as one of the most entertaining and informative introductions to the father of psychoanalysis--Cover,[p.4]

"Richard Appignanesi goes on a personal quest of Existentialism in its original state. He begins with Camus' question of suicide: 'Must life have a meaning to be lived?' Is absurdity at the heart of Existentialism? Or is Sartre right: is Existentialism 'the least scandalous, most technically austere' of all teachings?" --
Introducing Melanie Klein by R. D Hinshelwood ( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Melanie Klein was a pioneer in child psychoanalysis, who developed several groundbreaking concepts in the study of infant and early child development." "Although a Freudian, Klein's highly controversial opinions often brought her into conflict with the psychoanalytic movement, and with Anna Freud in particular. However, her work on depression and paranoid schizophrenia, which caused much upset at the time, is now in common use with psychoanalysts and academics in other fields of the human sciences."--BOOK JACKET

Machiavelli for beginners by Patrick Curry ( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""Machiavellian" is a popular byword for treachery and opportunism. Machiavelli's classic book on statecraft, The Prince, published over 400 years ago, remains controversial to this day because of its electrifying frankness as a practical guide to power. Is it a how-to manual for dictators, a cynical philosophy of "the end justifies the means", or a more complex and subtle analysis of successful government?" "Machiavelli was a loyal servant of the Florentine Republic. His opposition to Medici despotism resulted in his torture on the rack and exile. Yet he chose as his model for the Prince the most notorious tyrant, Cesare Borgia. Introducing Machiavelli traces the colorful life of this paradoxical realist whose clear-sighted patriotism made him the first truly modern political scientist. Machiavelli is seen as central to the postmodern debate on Civil Society."--BOOK JACKET
